Question
How do the P1 / P2 / P3 / Pass Through ports work on a AP3912i Access point?
Environment
  • Extreme Wireless
  • IdentiFi Wireless
  • WS-AP3912i
  • Software Version 10
  • Passthrough and Client Ports
Answer
In addition to the Lan1 and Lan2 ports on the bottom of the AP, there are four ports on the side of the AP as follows:
  • P1 = Port capable of connecting a single Client Device
  • P2 = Port capable of connecting a single Client Device
  • P3/PSE = Port Capable of connecting a POE device such as an IP Camera and can provide 802.3af power but only if LAN1 port is powered via 802.3at Power

  • Pass Through = Port is capable of connecting another switch, so all data coming into LAN1 and/or LAN2 ports will bridge through the AP to this port.  The Pass Through port will assume the untagged VLAN ID configured for the same management subnet the AP is on. Can be used to connect a Switch to allow multiple clients to connect through the AP

To Assign a Topology (VLAN) to the Client ports P1, P2 or P3, they must be assigned at the WLAN Assignment level which will assign the Topology from that specific WLAN service
Under The AP Tab > Click AP in Question > Configure button > WLAN assignment > Select which ports to assign to which WLAN Service

By default, the P1, P2 and P3 ports are set to auto-negotiation, but can be changed if we need to hard-set either 10mb or 100mb on the ports under the AP Static tab:
